Just Found Out



...the chorus of The Weight by The Band is 

Take a load off Fanny

not Annie.

I feel so let down.

SCD: Week 14

Lost another lb. So I've lost

11.4kg
1 stone 11lbs
or 25lbs.

Went for my first (park) run in around 2 months. My hip's not really getting any better, so what the hell. I came 227th at the ParkRun. Got lapped by the winner while I was still on my first lap. Good times.

Campbell's Soup


Today, after 48 years on this blob of spit and sand I finally found out the correct lyrics to Rhinestone Cowboy

I'd always thought it went

"Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And all sorts comin' over the snow"

it's "offers comin' over the phone"

Makes a lot more sense.

SCD Week 8


[Bad Ass Breakfast @Warsaw Diner. - My ass was perfectly fine...]

It's official (according to the doctor) that I've done something unpronouncable to my hip - and the only cure is rest. So no running probably for the next 2 weeks.

Had a pretty big cheat day and spent half of it working at the Royal Concert Hall with a few beers after to celebrate the end of a long and challenging project.


So I put on 2 lbs, 4 inches and 0.8 BMI. Gonna have to be really strict and do what upper body exercise I can.


Before [2016]


erm... still 'Before'? [2017]

SCD Week 7



No exercise due to injured hip, lots of eating out due to work, and lots of stress and upheaval due to life.

Weight unchanged - which feels like a positive
lost 1/2 inch
lost 0.6 BMI - which feels like a mistake (as I'm now taller!)

Felt quite ill after cheat day - Pizza/Spicy pizza/LOTS of pizza probable causes. Maybe ice cream too...

SCD Week 6


Apropos nothing - I love the leafy heart of celery

This week I lost
1.8 kg/ 4lbs
3 TI
0.3 BMI

I shaved 32 seconds off last weeks 5k time. I beat a guy with a dog. I was beaten by a lady with a pushchair (and child). On a hill.

And a guy started the race next to me and immediately ran into a lamppost. I think I beat him too.

Overall I've lost 8.3kg/18lbs
10 TI
2.7 BMI
